Karama’s mission is to empower the marginalized and extreme poor by championing opportunities for them to earn a sustainable income through creative and purposeful work.  Karama partners with African artisans, both in business and in friendship, and brings their handcrafted products to a global market. 

We build long-term trading relationships with our artisans and seek to honor them by sharing their stories of hope, dignity and triumph.  We desire to design and market high quality products that reflect the artisan and their culture while growing their small business. 

Our vision is a world where dignity replaces poverty.
